GPTO workshop on intellectual property rights

From 11 to 15 September 2017 the German Patent and Trademark Office (GPTO) organizes a Germany-wide action week concerning the topic “Added value by means of protection for ideas and innovations”.

The workshop is directed specifically at small and medium-sized companies. In a total of 11 cities throughout Germany the GPTO together with its partner institutions will explain how companies can profit from intellectual property rights. The workshop is offered free of charge. There will be two hour sessions in which companies can analyze their individual scope of IP protection. Further information on the workshop and the possibility to register can be found here, albeit in German only.

We very much agree that companies can benefit from a systematic protection of their relevant intellectual property and that an analysis of the individual scope of protection as well as the analysis of potential gaps is a good starting point. If you should be interested in such analysis regarding your trademarks, copyrights, designs or patents, feel free to contact us.
